Anyone seen the Joyce Carol Oates MasterClass trailer that begins, "The great enemy of your writing isn't your own lack of talent. It's being interrupted (pause) by other people."
No. Nope. I'm so not into a writer who had no children telling me that the enemy of my writing is -- well, for all intents and purposes -- the people I love. 
This feels so incredibly damning for writers who want to cre... Read more of this blog post »

Julianna and 6 other people liked Gayle's review of Pure (Pure, #1):
Pure by Julianna Baggott
"If you liked THE HUNGER GAMES, you'll love PURE. The best dystopia I've ever read. We know there will be two more books in the series plus a movie. My concern is I won't live long enough to see it all come to fruition.
I admire Julianna Baggott and..." Read more of this review »

Jsimpson Harriet Wolf's Seventh Book of Wonders was wonderful. I listened to the audiobook, and the narrators were great. My favorite was the narrator for Harriet Wolf, of course. I cannot wait to read Pure. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.
